Study Summary

This trial will test the feasibility of a 12-week, individualized, prescribed, supervised exercise intervention in adolescent and young adult (AYA) cancer survivors.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for young cancer survivors aged 15-39 who finished chemotherapy at least three months ago. It's not for those with CNS tumors, Down's Syndrome, serious liver issues, heart failure, cardiovascular disease, or certain physical disabilities that prevent exercise.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study tests a supervised exercise program tailored to individual needs of adolescent and young adult cancer survivors. The goal is to see if this improves their overall health and emotional well-being compared to typical outcomes without such intervention.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Exercise programs are generally safe but can include muscle soreness, fatigue, and risk of injury if not properly supervised or if the participant overexerts themselves.
